There is a quite big balcony that has view of the Venezian walls, the stadium of liberty and further away the see. Sunlight spreads everywhere in the house and the morning breeze is a nice feeling if you choose to sleep with windows open! There are two rooms, a modern bathroom(shampoo, shower gel, shaving gel,soap provided) and a kitchen(plates, FRAPE SHAKER(VITAL), cooking equipment provided). White color on the walls and mosaic floors. The bed is from solid wood and the almost double pricey mattress is super anatomic and 2 meters long! There is a desk if you feel like working and free wifi! In the living room there is a couch that you can convert to bed in one move and has many times provided comfortable sleep for 2 people.
The whole block of flats is family owned so there is always safety and help if you are in a need of anything. You can easily leave the doors open and feel comfortable! One important thing is to be subtle after midnight, respecting other's need for rest.
And please feel free to smoke but only outside in the balcony! That way you will have the chance to enjoy some fresh air and keep the apartment's smell fresh :)!
The city center is 13' walking, the bus stop is 2' walking, the stadium is 1' walking (free entrance), the park is 4' walking, the summer open cinema, inside the historical walls, the same distance (3euros). The area is safe to walk even in the early morning hours...
In few words, it's quite easy to feel like home :) And last but not least! If you feel like joining for a walk, night out with friends, or follow our local way of spending our time, you are welcome! Provided that you bring your good mood together!
We really enjoyed our stay here! The apartment is very conveniently located and it's a short walk to the old city from here. Maria, Manolis's sister, settled us in and she was really helpful and friendly. I would really recommend staying here. The apartment is much prettier as compared to the photos seen here!
I had a very pleasant stay at Manolis place: Manoli is a very helpful host, the appartement is clean, in a quiet neighborhood and very close to the center. Great place!
Everything was fabulous. Manolis was extremely helpful in giving advice and was always available if we had questions. Make sure to have him show you how to use the key. the lock was very difficult.
Would stay there again!
Πολύ προσεγμένο διαμέρισμα, ό,τι αναγράφεται στην περιγραφή ισχύει. Επιπλέον υπάρχει air-condition, και θερμοπομπός για το χειμώνα. Σε πολύ καλή τοποθεσία, μόλις λίγα λεπτά από το κέντρο της πόλης. Ήσυχη περιοχή, ήσυχοι γείτονες.
Θερμοσίφωνας για ζεστό νερό.
Πολύ φιλόξενος ο Μανώλης, και διατεθειμένος να βοηθήσει και να λύσει την οποιαδήποτε απορία.
The apartment was very spacious, clean and well-kept. The location was a bit hard to find but a short walk in to the old city. It was a very nice place to stay and the hosts were easy to get in touch with.
Manolis was very lovely and made checking in easy. Also he spent some time telling us about the city and all the best places to go which was great and very appreciated! The apartment was good, had everything we needed and was in good location. Highly recommend for short stays in Heraklion :)
The most charming host you could ever dream of. Friendly and eager to help you in every way. His apartment is spacious with a nice balcony and a great view on the sea, it is close to the city center and quite calm despite the occasional passing of a plane. I sure hope to go back to Heraklion some day and when I do, that would definitely be where I'll try to stay.
Many thanks, Manolis.
We did not get to meet Manolis, but did talk with him. He was very accommodating, and made sure that we got into the apartment OK. His father, a very nice man, was waiting for us at the door, and carried our bags for us upstairs, and showed us the apartment. The apartment was very clean and well furnished, a cozy "bachelor pad", with a nice balcony, and only a short, easy walk to the center of town. Manolis gave us good tips on restaurants, and told us where the taxi stand, near the apartment, is.
I found the apartment to be perfect for what I wanted. There is a Lidl supermarket 15 minutes away (walking) thats stocked with everything you may need for cooking, cheap food, cheap booze, with everything you would expect to find in the UK Lidl's. This was a massive plus for me.
Manolis was very polite, very helpful and a good communicator. The flat isn't far away from the town centre. The apartment is quite high up but I am very fit and enjoyed the challenge. Not sure how I would have coped cooking as I didn't cook; but the whole experience was just fine.
Manolis was the perfect host.He gave us so many recommendations about where to go and to do in our short ime I'm Crete. He was very helpful and attentive and receptive. The room is really Big, and had everything that we needed.
So, I recommend staying with Manolis.
